As defined by the National Institute of Mental Health, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is characterized by persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction across multiple contexts and restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities. To be diagnosed with ASD, symptoms must be present in the early developmental period (typically recognized in the first two years of life) and must cause clinically significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. Scientists don't know the exact causes of ASD, but research suggests that both genes and environment play important roles.
